If you were arrested for a crime against a person (like assault and battery or murder), a crime against property (like shoplifting, burglary, or arson), or any other criminal offense, you need a criminal defense attorney can help you. Every criminal charge is unique. Strict procedures must be followed in order for the charges to be upheld. Preparing the defense in criminal cases involves investigation of the facts (which includes discovery of the government’s evidence and interviewing witnesses, etc.), researching the law and of course, discussing the case with the prosecutor. The point is, we need to get involved in the case as early as possible.
